Most widely held works by John Thompson
A Greek grammar : accidence and syntax for schools and colleges by John Thompson( Book )

8 editions published between 1902 and 2013 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Thompson (c.1866-1936) was Classics master and headmaster (1908-27) at the prestigious High School, Dublin. A competent linguist, he translated from German, produced a Latin primer, and wrote a Sanskrit course, though he opposed the teaching of Irish. He became a Member of the Royal Irish Academy (1912), President of the Classical Association (1918) and was appointed Officier d'Académie by the French government (1927). This work, first published in 1902, was intended for both the beginner and the more advanced student. It concentrates on Attic Greek, covering accidence in part one and syntax in part two, with appendices on accents and sound changes, Homeric accidence, and the weights, measures and calendar used by Attic Greeks. The work was popular with generations of teachers and pupils. It remains a useful resource for the modern student of Greek, and for readers interested in the history of Classics education
Herodotus, book III by Herodotus( Book )

7 editions published in 1897 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hippolytos by Euripides( Book )

4 editions published between 1898 and 1900 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Played out against the ruined walls of Troy, The Trojan Women--one of the most powerful indictments of war ever written--grimly recounts the murder of the innocent, the desecration of shrines, and the enslavement of Trojan women. Hippolytus, the second drama, depicts the struggles to master human passion, struggles symbolized by gods who behave like irresponsible humans. These two classics of human self-examination are essential reading for anyone interested in world drama
Herodotus, book VIII by Herodotus( Book )

7 editions published in 1893 in 3 languages and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Xenophon : oeconomicus by Xenophon( Book )

4 editions published between 1895 and 1909 in Greek, Ancient and English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The odes and epodes of Horace : a modern English verse translation by Horace( Book )

3 editions published between 1895 and 1898 in Latin and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Epodes, with the first book of the Satires, were Horace's first published work. They consist of a collection of seventeen poems in different versions of the iambus, the metre traditionally associated with lampoon and in particular with the seventh-century Greek poet Archilochus. In none of Horace's works is his originality more brilliantly displayed than in this creative appropriation of a hitherto unexploited Greek genre
The Bacchae by Euripides( Book )

4 editions published between 1896 and 1900 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Williams handles the spoken poetry in a flexible verse that encompasses a wide range of tone. His treatment of the lyrics uses a rhythmically bold form whose accents would particularly lend themsleves to effective choral acting
Elektra : a play by Sophocles( Book )

3 editions published between 1894 and 1900 in 3 languages and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Electra recounts the murders of Clytemnestra and Aegisthus by Clytemnestra's son Orestes, to avenge their murder of his father Agamemnon, commander of the Greeks at Troy, upon his return home. Sophocles' version is presented from the viewpoint of Electra, Orestes' sister, who laments her father, bears witness to her mother's crime, and for years endures her mother's scorn. When Orestes arrives at last, her mood shifts from grief to joy as Orestes carries out the bloody vengeance. Despite her overwhelming passion for just revenge, Electra admits that her own actions are shameful."
